Does anyone remember the last "Q-dope" thread on QRP-L. Back in 1996 or 1997, the ensuing flame war almost melted polystyrene.

I suspected folks were making Q-dope with toluene and styrofoam peanuts and sniffing the fumes. (BTW, if you do this, do it outside..make Q-dope that is..... don't sniff the
fumes...they cause delusions of grandeur, poor spelling and grammar, and ear wax.)
